CLEVELAND - Mothers of premature babies at Cleveland Clinic received a special gift from Cleveland Cavaliers star J.R. Smith on Mother's Day.
Smith's wife Shirley "Jewel" and their daughter, Demi, delivered flowers to every single mother in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) Sunday. Mrs. Smith shared on her blog, My Kota Bear, that it was her husband's idea to hand out flowers to the mothers.
The Smiths' youngest daughter, Dakota, is also in Cleveland Clinic's NICU. She was born 5 months premature, weighing just one pound. Earlier this month, Dakota reached a major milestone of weighing 6 pounds at 122 days old.
